Earnings per diluted share was $0.02 for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $0.41 in the prior quarter and $0.60 in the second quarter of 2021. Earnings for the second quarter of 2022 were impacted by the completion of our previously announced merger with Pioneer and the $16.8 million in merger costs, net of tax or $0.66 per diluted share.
 
Neal Arnold, FirstSun’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with our continued progress this quarter, including organic loan growth and our growth in core returns, which excludes merger related expenses. The macro rate environment continues to impact our overall mortgage banking trends; however, we believe the strength of our diversified revenue mix will continue to position us well moving forward. Our loan portfolio continues to perform well and we remain focused on our credit quality. We expanded our business with the April 1st closing of the Pioneer merger and look forward to introducing all of our products and services to our new customers. We are actively working on the full integration of the Pioneer business following our successful completion of the system conversion during the second quarter. Our Southwest markets have exhibited strong economic growth and we look forward to our future growth across each of our markets.”
